ABUNDANCE OF GOOD
WHAT a joy it is to meet a friend who is pleasant, unselfed, considerate of others, and whose conversation is cheerful and hopeful. However, when one travels it is not unusual to overhear snatches of conversation, much of which is self-centered and tends to emphasize trouble, lack, and physical inharmonies.
In the study of Christian Science we learn that an abundance of good is continually and instantly available, and that all we have or possess comes from God, the, creator and provider of all. Certainly, the creator of the universe is able to maintain that universe, including man, for it is inconceivable that He would make something without the means for maintaining it. It is evident, then, that when one speaks of a lack of good, he must be thinking and reasoning from a false premise. Furthermore, we read in the Bible (Gen. 1:31), "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." Note that it does not say that only some things were bad, but that "every thing . . . was very good."
In the universe which God creates there is no sense of limitation; and when one ponders the magnitude of His creation, he is impressed with a sense of greatness, power, and abundance. When one begins to understand that greatness and power and wealth are available for all to share and enjoy, he feels comforted and secure. But the question is often asked as to how these qualities may become available in one's individual experience and how they can be retained continually.
